Watch Car Seat Headrest Cover Outkast's "Hey Ya!"

Car Seat Headrest put their own electric and energetic twist on Outkast’s 2003 classic “Hey Ya!” during a two-night homecoming run at The Showbox in Seattle over the weekend. The band, who will be continuing on the European leg of their tour in November, have become noted for their live covers of other artists, with singer Will Toledo and company offering imaginative and inspired takes on tracks both classic and modern. The choice of covering a hip-hop song is not all that unusual for the group—they covered Frank Ocean’s “White Ferrari” in February.

The band will be touring through the remainder of the year and into next. Find a full list of tour dates further down.

Watch the video for their cover of “Hey Ya!” below, and check out a 1998 Outkast performance from the Paste archives further down.
